Shackles are used for towing, hoisting, and load bearing applications. Lexco® Cable stocks anchor shackles (or “bow” type) and chain bolt shackles (or “D” type) in galvanized and stainless steel varieties. Alloy materials are also available for applications requiring extremely high workloads. We carry both domestic (Made in the USA) shackles and imported shackles.

Our shackles are available with three common types of pins: screw pins, round pins, and bolt-type or safety pins. Screw pins screw into position, round pins operate similarly to clevis pins, and bolt-type pins feature threading with nuts and cotter pins to ensure secure loads for maximum safety.

Lexco’s galvanized and alloy material shackles comply with US Federal Spec RRC-271D Type IV. Our stainless steel shackles are available in dimensions that comply with this Federal Spec and in non-fed spec dimensions. Stainless steel shackles are type 316 and are available in forged as well as cast construction.

All our shackles are available in bulk quantities, or as part of completed cable assemblies. We specialize in cable assembly fabrication, and can create the ideal assembly for your application, saving you time and money in production costs.
